Re: Can We Talk About Suicide?

Is suicide about money?

 

or is suicide about the feeling of failure?  Or of sense of loss of self-identity?  Money is a measure and maybe it's not the right measure.

Re: Can We Talk About Suicide?

it is a  feeling of failure.    Not about money but very much about the lack of it.   

 

Most everyone has grown up with parents who live half truth, and project something that is not real........ trying to shelter their family from things they need to know.

 

Feeling of failure  you can get on a daily basis in a local fsa office here in a sw ks county.

Re: Can We Talk About Suicide?

The ones I've personally known were 1) health (cancer), 2) feeling of failure (money or marital/family).

 

Many years ago, suicide wasn't talked about.  I didn't know until I was 40-something that I had had a great aunt that committed suicide after her husband left her.  A "friend" of my dad's used to go hunting with us every year on Thanksgiving weekend, turns out the man was raised by my grandparents (like a brother to my dad), was the son of the great aunt who committed suicide.  Nobody told us he grew up with my dad, nor that we were actually related, different last name (his dad's), until my grandmother shared the stories not long before she passed away.  Also, turns out there was another son of my great aunt that was adopted out, another different last name, and my parents used to visit him and his wife once or twice a  year, but again, my siblings and I didn't even know we were related to them until about 20 years ago.

I think it is a feeling of hopelessness. Feeling powerless about a situation and not seeing any way way to change it.

Add to that depression is blinding. Not seeing options that do exist is the warning sign.
I watch for abnormal obsessive discontent. And try to stay away from those who feed it. It reminds me of the crowd that always gathers to see tragedy and chear it on.
Hard economics are depressing. But our depression peddlers are criminal and the combination may be deadly. So help yourself and others see options clearly.

Re: Can We Talk About Suicide?

Good post and observations.  There should be at least one close enough friend who one can talk to and find the relief from stress and to seek help.  I was that friend a few years ago regarding deep personal issues.  I'm grateful I could help and walk alongside to bear that burden, if only to listen and show that someone cared enough to be there.
